Hodder started his architectural education in 1975,[3] and graduated from Manchester University in 1982 and joined Building Design Partnership but left after a year and set his own firm up after he was offered a project by a family member.

One of his first jobs came after he won a competition to build Lytham St Annes Station.

He joined the teaching staff at the Manchester School of Architecture. In 2011 he chairs the Professional Advisory Board at the School.[1]


Hodder won the Royal Fine Art Commission/Sunday Times Building of the Year Award for his design of Colne Swimming pool in Lancashire in the first year that his practice opened.

In 1995, Hodder Associates won the Grand Prize at the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition and in 1996 he was awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize for the Centenary Building, University of Salford.

Hodder was appointed Member of the British Empire (MBE) in 1998 for services to architecture.[1]

He was awarded an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Arts by Manchester Metropolitan University in 2006 in recognition of his distinguished contribution to architecture locally, nationally and internationally.
